apart of it is education and the parents, another part of it is gang culture. this has not just happened overnight, it has been going on for a while.
they commit crime and get away with it, they have learned that as long as they are in a group they can take from people and they will not fight back.
the parents do not give a crap about them and could not care less (parents should be charged and billed for crimes to and look on as a faliure to be a
responsible parent) infact i have heard stories of parents telling their kids to do things so that they have another income stream.
these gangs have plagued many area's and intimidated and terrorised many a resident before these riots broke out, and they have been able to get away
with it, soft sentences and in some cases nothing done about it at all. they get it into their heads that they can run the streets and there is
nothing anyone can do about it.
the more they get away with the worse crimes they start to commit.
they grow bolder... it is nothing new, they just got bolder. other people who are not normally involved in these gangs decided to take advantage and
loot what they could to. but mostly it is just the gangs coming together to take stuff and commit their usual crimes but on a bigger scale.
everybody is shocked about the boy who was punched, then helped up and robbed, i agree they are scum, but i do not get why people are shocked, it
happens all the time to people at the hands of these thugs, it just normally happens on housing estates not in commercial areas. they work in gangs
and pick on the vunerable or exposed.
they get away with it, and do more and they will continue to do more and get worse untill people say enough is enough, and i don't just mean with the
riots, but their mentality in general, even when they do it in a poor run down housing estate like they have been for years and nobody gave a crap.
